Boron Contamination in Mediterranean Groundwater
More than 10 percent of water
resources in the Mediterranean basin have boron levels that exceed E.U.
standards for drinking water. Understanding the source of the problem
will help countries better manage their groundwater and, in some cases,

Groundwater aquifers are an important source
of drinking and irrigation water around the world particularly in the desert.
Here, Zheng-Tian Lu, a physicist at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, inspects
an artesian well at Farafra Oasis, in the Western Desert of Egypt. Lu led a team
that dated the oldest water in the Nubian aquifer, a vast expanse of groundwater
below the Sahara Desert. See story and
features for more about groundwater investigations throughout the Middle
East and the western United States (to be posted later this month).
